I used their website to make my booking which was quick & user friendly. Then to get there we used the Gautrain Bus service which is just 10mins and drops you right in front of the hotel-so convenient!! Upon arrival our room was ready and we were immediately checked in by the friendly staff. The reception area is quite lovely and offers guests juice while you check in. I also enjoyed the breakfast so I will visit again soon.

Reasonably priced 4 star hotel. Rooms perfectly adequate. Good location. Breakfast and all day buffet in homestead restaurant on ground floor. Gourmet grill restaurant also (not weekends) plus a sun deck, and the elevate roof top bar.

We came back for the last module of our certificate training and once again had excellent and friendly service. Comfortable rooms with everything you need. This time I stayed in Room 1502 and loved being so high up and enjoyed the luxurious bathroom immensely - especially since coming from the Cape I could actually have a bath! But a caution when you stay on the 15th floor; you are on the floor / at the lifts that are ised by patrons of the Rooftop bar; can get noisy over weekends. But otherwise, all is top-top. We hope to be back.

The Reef Hotel 58 Anderson Street | Marshalltown, Johannesburg 2001, South Africa. The hotel also provides car rental. Midrand is 29 km from The Reef Hotel, and Kempton Park is 22.5 km from the property. The nearest airport is O.R. Tambo International Airport, 20.9 km from the property.

Service was very good and I enjoyed my short stay. I have commented on the rooms and what could be done to improve the overall look. As for the rest of the hotel, I am happy with the fact that changes are being made, and that new and improved ideas are implemented. I am looking forward to my next visit on the 19th April 2018.

Security is tight, nice parking for cars, reception was smiling know what they do, add people for cleaning the rooms because there are times that they finish late. But above all the treatment was good.

This hotel is fine and basic. The rooms and other parts try to look rustic but they just miss the mark. There is not much I can write about this hotel except to say the location is good, staff were fine but overall setup is confusing. Concierge on the ground floor, reception on 3rd floor and restaurant on ground (outer floor). The room location was fine but the hotel lacked something...identity. Parts were rustic with exposed walls and other parts modern...

This hotel is beautiful! The rooms, the food, the staff and the rooftop bar! We stayed here twice in a week as we had a safari in Kruger booked. When we checked in the reception staff called our safari operator to find out what time we were being picked up the following morning and offered to make us a takeaway breakfast for our 6 hour journey! We ate in the restaurant that evening as we had been advised by our taxi driver to the hotel not to go out into the surrounding area of the restaurant as it was dangerous (which made us slightly uneasy!) We had steak with spicy rice and lots of vegetables the restaurant has a selection of meats then potatoes, rice and fries then your choice of vegetables and sauces it was very tasty! We would recommend staying here for one or two nights!

The hotel is centrally situated within the CBD and this made my stay and business very easy as I had to walk from the hotel to my meeting. This saved me of the travelling time especially during the morning with the peak traffic.

was very lovely, I enjoyed my stay, the service that I received was exemplary. the room was clean and neat and it was quiet. the staff were very helpful. the lifts were slow to arrive due to maintenance but otherwise all went well
